For Your Consideration:
My first attempt at biscotti. I was making a sa-paghetti and-a meat-sa-ball dinner, complete with garlic bread and salad and thought, "What can I make for dessert that goes with all of this and isn't cannoli?" And biscotti was the winner!
I did modify the recipe a tad. I hate anise so I substituted vanilla instead. And I added about 2 handfuls of chocolate chips to the dough. You can't go wrong with chocolate chips in a baked good.
We haven't actually tried them yet, but The Viking has just walked in the door with the coffee ice cream I asked for (it's National Coffee Day--did you know that?) so we're about to go to town.
